For this paper, the thoughts include the programming languages C [? These languages are picked to give a wide range of cases, including both human readable and more machine readable languages, and brace and indent delimited structures. Some particular examples that are not included in this list are HTML [?
These are deliberately left out because they are older languages and have many quirks that prevent existing parsers from working well on them. This includes highly context sensitive areas, the ability to redefine concepts during the parsing, non-conforming input etc. Often the bracketing is some of the most important structure in a program, however using Yacc this can be split over many lines and is not made explicit. The bracketing phase is also interspersed with determination of the content, making the allowable nesting of brackets a hard thing to determine.
In reality this is one of the core concepts underlying any language, and one of the first things a language designer would specify.
In most languages a string is both started and ended with the quote character. However, quote characters may also appear within the string, and in this case the quote needs to be treated specially.
Usually Lex is instructed to skip the escape character, however the position and meaning of this escape character is not recorded — meaning the string must be parsed again later. Obviously this duplication is bad, and can lead to different interpretations at different points. One way to view a string, is as a bracket that does not allow nesting.
lex & yacc (2nd ed.)
When viewed this way an escape character could be considered as a special token within a string — not part of a continuous character stream. Having them as standard is just bad.
This means that many different Lex schemes may be used within one single language definition. The Lex operation in my implementation is identical to that in traditional parsing — however while Lex would usually focus mainly on thing such as strings and escape characters, this is now dealt with by Bracket making Lex considerably simpler.
The final operation called Group is one for which there is no parallel in the original parsing architecture — group is about taking a tree of tokens and grouping sections to make more intuitive data structures. Group is not a CFG, but is simply a regular expression engine in the same spirit as Lex but applied to tokens instead of characters.
Using this regular expression idea, many of the problems with Yacc evaporate, for example the else statement now is greedily eaten as with Lex expressions. A named element has a Name, and extra fields depending on its type.
An object generated by Lex would have a Text field. An object generated by Group would have a children property, comprising of a list of Named objects.

An object generated by Bracket would have children, along with a start and stop text. The output is defined as above, but the exact implementation is not.
The actual output will vary — when precompiled the names may correspond to types, when loaded dynamically they could correspond to strings. Different languages would represent different elements in different ways — for example C would use named attributes in a class, while Haskell would use the position of arguments within a list. The one output that is defined concretely is the XML serialisation.
